Winter update from Holy Cross

Welcome to the winter update from Holy Cross Anglican School. We've had a wonderful term, full of hard work by teachers and students, mixed with a few fun days of celebration in between.

Now, as the students take a three week break over Christmas and New Year, we pray that you too would have the opportunity to spend time with family and enjoy a break.
Students do some creative work
Mayan field trip
Standard 3 and 6 students teamed up to go on a field trip to historic sites in Belize City, as well as the Altun Ha Mayan temple. It was a fun trip, followed up by them designing some great brochures.
Water cycle projects
Standard 4 students put their creativity and teamwork to the test when they recently created posters showing their understanding of the water cycle.
Culture day
Belize is a nation of many cultures, something that we celebrate each year. Students and staff out did themselves this year, dressing in a variety of costumes and putting on a great cultural show.

You can help!
We're always looking for volunteers. Here's three ways you can help!

Literacy Tuition - If you're visiting for 2 weeks or more, we'll give you full training to help a child improve their literacy. Many past volunteers say this has been incredibly rewarding. No experience necessary, just patience.

Maintenance and Building - This summer we have to paint and repair buildings and we need your help to do it. We're looking for youth groups, church mission teams, or even just small groups of skilled individuals to come and lend a hand.

Computer, printer and copier maintenance - If you're coming to Belize for a holiday and can service computers, printers or photocopiers please get in touch with us a few weeks before you come, as we often could use some help keeping our equipment working at its best (or working at all).

Any space for these in your bag?
As always, our wishlist is updated regularly with our key needs. Here's our current top 5:
  1. DDR2 2gig memory cards
  2. Filler paper
  3. Pocket folders
  4. Crayons
  5. Permanent markers
Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter and keeping up to date with what we're doing. And thank you for your ongoing support and interest.

As always, if you know of anyone coming to Belize, please mention our name. We love visitors and would gladly give them a tour and introduce them to our amazing little school.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year's.
